Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Saint Jacobs Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Saint Jacobs, ON discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Saint Jacobs hotel for each day and each star rating category.

The area along the Conestoga River, that's now known as St. Jacobs, was first settled in 1830. Most of those early settlers were Mennonites from Pennsylvania. As the population grew steadily over the next couple of decades, school lessons were taught entirely in the local German dialect, further emphasizing the community's Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. After residents established a dam, a sawmill, a woolen mill, a flour mill, and a school, the village was named Jakobstettel, or Jacob's Village. The “St.” was added later, and the pluralization of “Jacobs” was meant to honor local mill owner Jacob C. Snider and his son Jacob C. Snider, Jr.

Despite a rail line reaching St. Jacobs in 1891, the community remained small, with virtually no population growth until the 1950s. Today, St. Jacobs is a charming commercial center with a bustling tourism industry. The village features numerous historic buildings, restaurants, retailers, and attractions, making it a great destination for a weekend getaway. Whatever your reasons for visiting St. Jacobs, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to explore everything this wonderful village has to offer.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Saint Jacobs, ON?

The best time to visit St. Jacobs is in the shoulder seasons from late April through May and again from September through October. You'll want to pack plenty of clothing layers, however, as average highs drop below 70 degrees and evening lows are even chillier. Visiting in the off-season certainly has its perks, as you can enjoy discounted hotel rates throughout town.

If you don't mind paying more for your accommodations, summers in St. Jacobs are glorious. The village comes alive with people filling up the patio restaurants, marketplaces, and attractions, which only adds to the excitement. Those who prefer to avoid crowds, however, might want to hold off on visiting until after the tourist season ends.

Winters in St. Jacobs are biting and cold, keeping most visitors away. If you don't mind braving the seasonal weather, you'll enjoy rock-bottom hotel rates across this region of Ontario. And just because the tourists stay at home for the season, doesn't mean the community shuts down. Sites like the farmers market stay open for the season, if only on a limited basis, allowing you to get the full experience. Just be sure to book refundable flights and make some alternative travel plans in the event of inclement weather.
